"The Classy Chassys"

If you haven’t seen their live show, you might be missing out on one of the best in Canada. At such young ages (all band members are under 25 years old), The Classy Chassys pluck the heart strings of rock and soul. Lead vocalist/guitarist Matt Joyal infuses his smooth tenor with such raw energy that you might mistake him for a living -- but possessed -- Elvis Presley. Once you hear him belt it out in his element, you’ll know what I mean.

The band's rhythmic backbone is provided Luke Saretsky (banging on the stand-up drums) and Dan Neumeier (slapping on the upright bass). Wailing alternately on a tenor and an alto saxophone is is Kenny Martelli, who joins Joyal on the lead team. Together, the four musicians create a new millennium rockabilly sound that simultaneously takes their audience back to the days of diners and drag races.

The Classy Chassys' unique ability to blend the ultramodern with the nostalgic isn't limited to their music; they appear on stage in an updated version the true greaser fashion -- tight black pants, white shirts and suspenders, their hair in hip pompadours.

Honestly, their whole presentation is so delicious that I’d be lying if I said they didn’t make me practically bite through my bottom lip at each performance.

The Classy Chassys, born from the ashes of previous bands, have made it their mission to strip down their music while maintaining a high energy feel. With influences stretching as far back as Elvis Presley, B.B King and Louis Prima, to newer acts such as The Stray Cats and Reverend Horton Heat, they have forged a classic yet modern style combining the best sounds of rockabilly, swing, blues, jazz, and rock. The band consists of the rhythmic backbone of Luke Saretsky banging on the standup drums, and Dan Neumeier slapping on the stand up bass. On the lead team is Kenny Martelli wailing on Tenor and Alto saxaphones, and Matt Joyal strumming the guitar and belting the vocals. When The Classy Chassys play expect nothing short of raw energy. The band is always up and dancing while playing their music, and have made it their mission to make everyone who listens do the same.
